A propos de cet article

Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Signed on the title page by Godwin. First book of the Snake Oil Wars series, followed by THE SNAKE OIL WARS OR SCHEHERAZADE GINSBERG STRIKES AGAIN (1989). The duology "is an erratically amusing but ultimately very dark-complected satire on religion and U.S. society at large, refracted through the behavior of the two aliens who were long before responsible for breeding Homo sapiens from its primate stock, and have now taken on the roles of God and Devil; the assault on Christian fundamentalism is explicit." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#145944). N° de réf. du libraire 145944

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Imagine two brothers off on an intergalatic Spring Break. When their friends leave them behind on Earth, they've got a few millenia to kill before they'll manage to get back to school. So, as an experiment, mind you, they decide to give evolution a bit of a nudge... And that's when all hell breaks loose... a little more literally than either of them planned...

Review:

...an oft-told tale of how man came to be, spiced with the amazingly twisted imagination of Parke Godwin. -- Rickey R. Mallory, CompuServe Romance Reviews

This novel combines satirical, contemporary, and religious fantasy, offering nearly all their rewards and avoiding nearly all their pitfalls. -- Chicago Sun Times
